I really enjoyed this game. they have really amped up the stealth mechanics with this one. Every level you play has many different approaches. you can be sneaky or, given you have the bullets to spare, you can go in guns a'blazing. good graphics and an excellent story. you really feel as if you are in the post-apocalyptic metro of moscow. i would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys a shooter with an rpg feel. athough it doesnt have much replay value, it is definitely worth the rent!

Excellent campaign. And what I mean by excellent is, HOLY .... THIS GAME IS AMAZING. They game style for a FPS game is brilliant. Although the sensitivity was too low for my liking. Very scary moments. Like the options you have of either running in Rambo style or having the option to use stealth and maneuver around your enemies. Only downfall, no multi-player. Would absolutely recommend this title.
Now, I was a huge fan of Metro: 2033 (the predecessor to this game). And this game took that gameplay and made it better. The graphics were improved, the sound was improved and the physics and stealth aspects were all improved. One of the things I must applaud this game on is the ambiance. Its not a horror game so to speak but you never feel at ease or safe. At night on the surface, when its deathly quiet you can hear all manner of beasts out on the night. Roaring, howling and running. I love that. The gameplay is your typical FPS. Nothing fancy, point shoot kill, reload. You have some ‘nades as well. But dont let that fool you, its very good gameplay, and this isnt the kind of game you buy purely for gameplay. It has so much more than just that. It has a gripping story and an incredible journey. Now, in my opinion, the previous game had a better story but most sequels never do quite live up to their standards. Now, I bought the game because I didnt want to wait for it to be available on on GameFly but I would say its a definite rent, it has okaaaaay replay value but not very much. All in all, it was fantastic like the last one. 8/10 from me.
